After winning a groundbreaking negligence ruling and award of $8 million for our catastrophically injured client in court in Ontario, we were successful at the Ontario Court of Appeal and again at the Supreme Court of Canada.
In June 2017 our fight for justice for our client ended in victory when the Supreme Court of Canada agreed with Robert Hooper’s argument on the standard of care for children involved in car accidents. The Supreme Court of Canada would not hear the defendant’s appeal. Three levels of Court had agreed with our fight and our win for the victim who was ten years old when he was struck as a pedestrian while crossing a four-lane road on his way to school.
All three courts confirmed that our client was not negligent and he was entitled to be fully compensated for the critical injuries he suffered in the accident.
